WWE Friday Night Smackdown! 4/30/10

“The New Faces of Friday Nights”

Draft recap.

Smackdown open, pyro and ballyhoo.  Todd Grisham and Matt Striker are the announcers.  Tony Chimel is the ring announcer.

Tony Chimel introduces Smackdown General Manager Teddy Long.  Teddy introduces one of Smackdown’s new superstars, Kofi Kingston!

Chris Jericho comes out to face Kofi, but first cuts a promo about going to Raw.  Kofi takes the mic and tells Jericho to shut up, then does his “BOOM!  BOOM!  BOOM!” bit.

Kofi Kingston vs. Chris Jericho.  Jericho goes on the attack immediately.  Kofi comes back with his corner punches, but Jericho powerbombs him out of the corner.  Insta-commercials!  Jericho knocks Kofi out of the ring with a baseball slide dropkick, throws him back in, and beats on him some more.  Jericho locks in a neck and/or shoulder hold.  Jericho avoids a charge in the corner and sends Kofi into the turnbuckles.  Jericho beats up Kofi some more.  Kofi hits a diving cross body for 2.  Kofi does his chops and goes for the Boom Drop, but Jericho blocks it and goes for the Walls of Jericho.  Kofi counters into a cradle for 2.  Kofi dodges an enzuigiri and goes for the Trouble In Paradise, but Jericho catches his leg and locks him in the Walls of Jericho.  Striker is so full of shit, claiming that arching up will RELIEVE pressure on the back.  Fucking moron.  Kofi gets a rope break and hits a dropkick.  Jericho avoids the Boom Drop again and hits the Codebreaker, send Kofi out of the ring.  Jericho rolls him back in the ring and covers for 2.  Jericho kicks the bottom rope in frustration.  Jericho yells “WHERE’S THE BOOM?”  Kofi catches Jericho with the Trouble In Paradise out of nowhere for the pin (6:14 shown).  Good little match.  The crowd popped big for Kofi’s win.

The World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger gets heat by being pro-George Bush.

Extreme Rules highlights.

WWE.com plug.

Chris Jericho talks shit to someone backstage.  It’s The Big Show.  Big Show KTFO punches Jericho.

Chavo Guerrero Jr. cuts a promo about being back on Smackdown.  Kane comes out and chokeslams him.  Kane says “Welcome back, Chavo,” then does his pyro.

John Morrison takes on Cody Rhodes NEXT!

WWE Magazine!

Hershey!  Pennsylvania, that is.

Shad Gaspard cuts a short promo backstage.

John Morrison vs. Cody Rhodes.  They do some stuff.  Morrison slaps Rhodes.  Rhodes takes him down with a drop toe hold.  They lock up aggressively.  Rhodes stomps Morrison into the corner.  Morrison fights back, drops Rhodes with a big kick, and hits a standing Shooting Star press for 2.  Rhodes bails.  Morrison follows and sends him in the barricade.  Cody rallies and hits a big boot off the steps.  Back inside.  Insta-commercials!  Morrison fights out of a hold.  Rhodes hits a dropkick for 2.  Rhodes hits a knee drop for 2.  Rhodes keeps the heat on Morrison.  Morrison avoids a knee drop and lands a dropkick.  Morrison builds his comeback.  Reverse cradle gets 2.  Morrison hits the Flying Chuck for 2.  Morrison counters the Cross Rhodes and hits a flapjack for 2.  Cody avoids the Starship Pain and backdrops Morrison to the apron.  Morrison goes for a springboard head scissors thingy, but Rhodes hits the Alabama Slam.  “That’s Hardcore!” Striker yells.  Excellent.  Morrison hits the running knee for 2.  Rhodes hits a jawbreaker.  Morrison rocks him with a kick.  Rhodes hits the Cross Rhodes for the pin (8:00 shown).  Good little match.

Jack Swagger is still backstage talking about his credentials.

Edge is headed our way!

WWE Rewind: Edge spearing Randy Orton on Raw and costing him the Triple Threat Match.

Edge comes to the ring for his farewell address.  He says he doesn’t want to leave because Smackdown always felt like home.  He says he loves the fans.  Christian comes out.  Edge acts happy to see him and talks about their history.  Edge tells Christian he’s his best friend and wishes him luck on Smackdown.  So they’re not brothers anymore.  Christian talks about their history and says he knows Edge better than anybody, and knows he’s full of it.  They go back and forth.  Christian says he’s never been World Champion, since of course the NWA title doesn’t count.  Christian calls Edge a liar.  Edge admits it, then bashes the fans.  Christian says it finally dawned on him that Edge used him to get to the top.  Christian challenges Edge.  Edge says no, then Pearl Harbors Christian.  Edge goes for the spear, but Christian blocks it and kicks Edge’s ass.  Christian goes for the Killswitch, but Edge counters it and bails.  Christian gets the crowd do sing the stupid goodbye song.  Good segment, but Edge’s heel turn makes no fucking sense at all.

Josh Matthews interviews Edge.  Big Show shows up and KTFO punches him.  Man, Smackdown should just be 2 hours of Big Show punching people out backstage.

Michelle McCool & Layla (w/ Vickie Guerrero) vs. WWE Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix & Kelly Kelly.  McCool and Kelly do some shit.  It sucks.  Kelly does her ridiculous looking Dragon Kid shit and a rana for 2.  Vickie cheap shots Kelly on the outside.  McCool beats up Kelly.  Layla tags in and cuts Kelly off from making the tag.  Kelly avoids a leg drop and makes the hot tag.  Beth runs wild.  Beth goes for the Glam Slam.  McCool comes in to save and gets knocked out of the ring.  Beth hits a slingshot suplex on Layla and tags in Kelly.  Kelly hits her fucking awful Fameasser on Layla for the pin in 3:37.  Fucking terrible.  The highlight was Striker’s line after the Beth’s slingshot suplex, “Somewhere, a Brainbuster is smiling.”

More Jack Swagger backstage hyping himself.

WWE bullshit fact of the night.

Chris Masters wiggles his man tits.

Dolph Ziggler comes out.  They show him putting Hornswoggle in the sleeper on Raw.  He is a great, great man for doing that.  Ziggler says “No one will ever see that little troll on Smackdown again.”  I fucking hope he’s right.

They show Matt Hardy’s injury at the hands of Ziggler and Drew McIntyre last week.

Josh Matthews interviews Matt Hardy.  He says he’ll be back.  Drew McIntyre jumps him and hits the double arm DDT on the floor.

JTG cuts a promo backstage.

The Straight Edge Society comes out.  Punk cuts a promo about beating Rey Mysterio at Extreme Rules.  MVP interrupts and apologized to the fan for having to listen to Punk’s spiel every week.  THANK YOU, MVP.  MVP decks Punk and jumps on Gallows.  Of course, he’s quickly overcome by numbers.  And of course, Rey Mysterio Jr. makes the save.  Commercials!

CM Punk & Luke Gallows (w/ Serena) vs. Rey Mysterio Jr. & Montel Vontavious Porter.  MVP and Gallows start.  MVP knocks Gallows down with a forearm and tags in Mysterio.  MVP wheelbarrows Mysterio onto Gallows for 2.  Gallows and Mysterio do stuff.  Gallows hits a big boot for 2, then pounds on Mysterio.  Punk tags in and pounds on Mysterio.  Punk hits a backdrop suplex and a trifecta of leg drops for 2.  Punk locks in a figure-four head scissors.  Mysterio fights out.  Gallows tags in.  SES double teams Mysterio.  Cover gets 2 for Gallows.  Bad guys continue to get heat on Mysterio.  Mysterio drops Punk with a spinny DDT.  MVP and Gallows tag in.  MVP runs wild.  Ballin’ elbow gets 2, as Punk saves.  Mysterio hits Punk with the springboard Bombs Away.  619 to Gallows.  MVP hits the Paydirt on Gallows for the pin in 5:06.  Poor Shelton Benjamin.  He gets fired, then MVP steals his finish.  The hooded guy comes in and hits a neckbreaker on Mysterio, then runs out through the crowd.  The match was fine.

Another Jack Swagger fun fact.

Tony Chimel introduces the World Heavyweight Champion, Jack Swagger.  He cuts a promo.  The crowd hates him.  He talks forever.  Teddy Long comes out and introduces the new #1 Contender, The Big Show!  Show talks about all of Swagger’s claims to greatness, then KTFO punches him.  Yay!  I approve of Show just punching out random people on Smackdown.

Fun show this week.
